Kelsey takes pride in her strong relationships with clients and consultants. She credits her ability to continually learn and hone in on a client’s needs as one of the keys to providing quality solutions for the projects she’s a part of. She brings experience from both sides of the design process – as a design professional, representing the client; and as a member of the client group, being an end user who works in the new spaces every day. While with her previous employer, Kelsey worked to create and implement a design standard to which future projects would be based upon, thus marketing a consistent image for her employer. In addition, she worked with community organizations on projects within the city, such as renovations in the historic downtown district and new construction buildings for the local university, reinforcing the relationship between the community and her employer.
Kelsey has nine years of experience. She joined SVPA in October of 2016.
